Sunday Worship December 11, 2022

Grace to you and peace, from God our Creator and the Lord Jesus Christ!  

This Sunday, as we light the third Advent candle, the candle of Joy, we are invited to consider the way that even our most difficult moments can be transformed by joy or into joy.  Still, living through challenges is not easy and requires a strength we do not always feel as though we have.  It is into moments like these that we may pray to be reminded of all that we can do for others and what God can do for us.  Those are the changes we await and prepare for in Advent.  Celebrate the promise of joy with your church family tomorrow, as we pray and sing together, including joining the choir in familiar carols and new, upbeat songs.

Blessings and peace, Lisa

Worship at Home Materials:  We will be offering worship in-person as well as on Zoom this coming Sunday.  Coffee & tea are available after the church service. We ask that if you have not yet been vaccinated you attend worship via Zoom.  Masks are required during the singing of hymns, as the virus spreads most easily with the projection of droplets.  

Below you will find materials to accompany this week’s Sunday Morning Worship via Zoom.  An order of service with scripture readings, to accompany the service, are available by clicking the following links.
